Where is Ali from originally, if you don't mind me asking?

That was blessing in disguise on your daughter's part. Normally they won't accept ''professional" shots if she's just starting out. Polaroids would suffice. But that's great Ali got a job right away!

So where was i in the wrong?

I was scouted twice in my hometown by local agencies, one time was funny because I was with my friend who is taller (5ft10) and skinnier than me and IMO prettier. I was also scouted once when I was in London by Models1 but I don't live anywhere near there and I'm sure they scout thousands of girls and are not interested in most anyway so couldn't be bothered with that.

How Many of you were Scouted?
Just curious since it seems the models that are scouted end up being more well known.
